Hello everyone.  I know that I haven't been posting here, like at all recently.  Well, it's real life and all that took a hold of me.  But I would like to promote a new site that is doing gaming articles and reviews.  If you could check out Player Theory's site that would be great for the site.  We just need the viewership and your help would be greatly appreciated.

You know what?  Fuck Rise of the Tomb Raider.  At least as long as it stays exclusive to the ugly bone attached to Microsoft.  Hideo FREAKING Kojima had just teased us in another great freaking way.  Despite his... odd position on Ground Zeroes which should have been a lot less cheap... this is typical clever Kojima.

Today Sony had released a first ever "interactive teaser" on the PSN store titled "P.T."  Turns out it stands for Playable Teaser, and by the sounds of it by other people, this thing is THE MOST TERRIFYING THING TO BE WITNESSED IN LONG VIDEO GAME HISTORY.  For those who completed it, they were rewarded with a cutscene at the end.  It shows a rendered version of Norman Reedus of Walking Dead fame walking around with a flashlight in what appears to be a similar role to Harry Mason walking alone in... Silent Hill.  It is also being made with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro of Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, The Hobbit Movies, and Pacific Rim fame.  DUDE.  That is awesome.  Something I'd get a PS4 for with gusto.  Considering Silent Hill has been Playstation dominant for its run time (especially the first four) and this could very well be Silent Hill 5 or a full-blown remake, this feels RIGHT.  So much YES.  Fuck you Microsoft and Square Enix.  I want a full blown apology from Square and Microsoft to man up, say they bought Square out, and make something themselves.  If they wanted an Uncharted killer, if anyone could even manage to try is beyond me, they should have made it themselves instead of buying someone else out.

Exclusivity... something I don't particularly like.  It's kinda like a dick measuring tool for companies and their little fan trolls.  Or I should rather say exclusivity of something that shouldn't be.  Nintendo games on Nintendo consoles I can understand.  Sony games and Xbox games as such.  Now a game that doesn't belong on a different console and not on the proper console for no reason?  That's where I start to get angry.  The only excuse to this is if the game wouldn't have been made in the first place, like Bayonetta 2.  We still get the game AND the first and we wouldn't have gotten it in the first place without Nintendo.

For the record, I have enjoyed the reboot of Tomb Raider.  If you have followed me, I praised the merits it took as being a reboot as taking its roots seriously AND doing something new to the lore.  As opposed to the trash that was DmC.... but that's not why I'm ranting today.

But Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbone only?  No.  There's no reason.  It's because Microsoft is throwing money at people so that game don't appear on other consoles.  Dead Rising 3 for example.  No reason to be on the Bone since it went to PS3 and PC.  But guess what?  It stopped being exclusive when the money wasn't exactly coming in, I bet.  That's the big reason the Bone's "major" exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome is going to PC as well.  Titanfall is also on that front.

Do I believe this will remain exclusive?  No.  Why?  The sales.  Rise of the Tomb Raider WILL hurt in the sales, I guarantee it.  Very much so to Square Enix.  The first reboot sold terribly across five consoles... to Square.  It sold like 5... 6 million and only THEN when it got to 6 million is when Square finally said it was profitable.  At 6 MILLION.  Across PS4, 3, Xbone, 360, and PC.  That's close to 1 million per console.  You honestly, HONESTLY think this will end good for you?

Think about this for a second Square Enix.  You aren't exactly in a good state with your money.  Sony had recently dropped you because they didn't see you were profitable.  This is a good reason why they don't think you are profitable anymore (also see Final Fantasy: All the Bravest, First release of Final Fantasy XIV, the whoring out FFXIII, your mobile blunders, not properly working on Final Fantasy XIII-Versus now FFXV or Kingdom Hearts 3).  Now you expect that a sequel to something that was a "failure" to you, Tomb Raider selling a modest 3-4 million across several consoles at first, to sell great on one console that is as of late only around 4-5 million in install base with a lot of negative publicity attached to it?  You just alienated your Playstation crowd and your PC crowd just because Microsoft paid you a lot of money.  I would also like to point out that Tomb Raider on the Xbone sold only .17 million.  www.vgchartz.com/game/78260/to…  I'm oh so SURE that this won't end in disaster in any shape or form. 

If Square keeps with this decision, they're going to make many, MANY people pissed off and not want to support their games.  Hopefully this stupid decision of Square's rectified in the future.  This is utterly disgraceful.

Hello! I am BreakSlash, your average video game, movie, TV series, comic book, and media reviewer and critic! I will be reviewing various pieces of media, whether I see it as good or bad. My range will normally go from average where people have mixed feelings to it to the god awful. I will also review the newest movies I just saw at theaters. If you have something that I should have a look at, please let me know! I also draw! BreakSlash out!

After some influence by some Let's Player's on Youtube, I am also going to try Retrospectives on various game series and actual Let's Plays!

I will draw title cards for free! Now, in order to qualify for this, you must have the following:
A creditable web show/site that I can easily find (most notable for TGWGT site or Cinema Massacre.)
At least 1 creditable review (preferably a video review. Though I do text based reviews, I may bend a little, but you need to prove you done at least 1 review nonetheless)
I will let you know when I can get it done as soon as possible.

For those who are wondering, I draw the following:
Fan art
Title Cards
Video Game/Movie/TV Show Characters

Will Not Draw:
Fetishes
Nudity
Gore
